Natsume Announces Localization For Carnage Heart EXA
The USA Playstation Network will be receiving the PSP game sometime later this year, according to Natsume. It’s a highly customizable mecha streategy RPG, and you play as their commander, issuing orders to your mech troops and engaging in a large-scale conflict.

Rurouni Kenshin: Kaisen Has A Ton Of Unlockables
The sequel to last year’s fighting game for Rurouni Kenshin has a whole slew of new features, and to top it off, it contains over 300 stills from both the original series and the New Kyoto Volume as well. Going through the story mode and completing certain objectives or finding certain collectibles will unlock the stills.
If you import a save file from the previous title, Rurouni Kenshin: Saisen, you also get an unspecified bonus.
The PSP game gets released in Japan on August 30th, but remember that it’s not region-locked and can play on any PSP, since it’s unlikely to reach NA or PAL shores.
New Trailer for Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable
Ready for some awesome? Well, here’s a new trailer for the upcoming PSP title, Puella Magi Madoka Magica Portable.
Based on the popular anime series, the game will feature multiple stories depending on the order you play in. Also, all in-game dialogue will be voiced. The game will launch in Japan on March 15, 2012. I doubt the title will be localized, but hey, a guy can dream, right?
Despite being released in late October in Japan, Square Enix has confirmed that the dev team behind the game is already hard at work bringing it over to both the NA and PAL regions.
Square Enix has a bit of history releasing PSP games mere months away from each other in differing regions. Dissidia 012[duodecim] only had a one month delay while Tabata’s last title, The 3rd Birthday, had a three month gap.
Expect to see this around early 2012 for the PSP, one of its last titles to be released outside Japan.
Last week, Sony dominated the Japanese video game market by having 6 of the top 10 best selling games last week. Tales of Xilia, which just got released in Japan, easily took the country by storm selling over half a million copies. It should also be noted that Sony’s products easily took the top 5, with a new Nintendo Wii release (Super Sentai Battle: Ranger Cross) trailing by over 3,000 copies from #5.
Sony’s products have taken 12 of the Top 20 best selling games last week with Nintendo taking 7. Bad news for Microsoft in Japan, where their only best seller came from the Resident Evil: Revival Selection.
Sony’s success doesn’t stop with the software, however. PS3 units outsold the ever-popular 3DS in Japan (a very, very rare occurrence) by over 15,000 units while even the PSP outsold the Wii by nearly 15,000 units. Nintendo maintains their hold on the handheld market, but Sony remains vigilant with at-home gaming.
Tales of Xilia is expected to remain a strong seller in the country, so one can only hope that Sony beefs up their security and manages to keep up with their promises to maintain the good sales and remain a steady competitor in the worldwide market.
